I am working on my first build and seeking advice in all areas. My main focus will be running WoW on Ultra settings. My main question is just as the title reads. Is my graphics unit a decent fit for my requirements and build?

Thanks in advance for the assistance. I am very new to this and I really appreciate any and all feedback.

poor vid card choice to run wow, or anything at highest detail, especially at the monitors native 1080p resolution. that vid card is a mid-low range card. But your PSU choice doesnt allow for anything better than that anyway. read that, it may be helpful.

A good idea would be to go for at least a gtx460 or amd 6850. Ideal would be more like a gtx560 Ti. And a matching 500w good quality PSU from antec, seasonic or OCZ and corsair if you chose one of their higher end models.
